Under Eye Filler Treatment Options: Everything You Need to Know

Under Eye Filler Treatment Options: Everything You Need to Know

There are many different approaches and prices for removing under eye bags and dark circles with  fillers. Why is that? The range is so wide due to many different factors such as buying an individual filler VS a comprehensive treatment plan, type of filler, the provider’s experience, and more. 

Single fillers can be priced at $1,000 or less while using multiple fillers per side over multiple visits can cost several thousands of dollars in the cost of the dermal fillers alone, but allows for a more comprehensive and natural result. 

Dr. Stephen Bracci has been treating under eye bags for more than 20 years and is one of the leading experts in the field. The under eye area is one of the most difficult areas of the face to treat with fillers and commands years of experience and a large volume of successful treatments.

Under Eye Filler Treatment Area

  • How do under-eyes change with age?

As we age we begin to experience a loss in muscle and bone structure, resulting in volume loss in areas such as the under-eye. The anatomy behind the loss of support in the orbital rim and mid-face may lead to a sunken eye area, hollowing around the eyes and mid-face, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Treating both the tear trough and mid-face with filler is crucial for a natural, restorative look. 

Types of Under-Eye Tear Trough Filler + Application 

Hyaluronic acid fillers are by far the most commonly used filler type applied – brand names you may know of our Juvederm  Restylane, Versa. However the limitation of this type of filler injection is that it attracts water, and using an excessive amount of these types of filler may lead to puffiness.

  • Employing a multi-filler strategy across several treatments

The ideal way to achieve natural looking results is with a multi-filler strategy. This means using a blend of HA fillers and firmer fillers such as Radiesse or Sculptra to help lift the area and add volume back to the area. 

Radiesse is a cosmetic filler made from calcium hydroxylapatite, a naturally occurring mineral in the body that is found in our bones. Like most fillers, Radiesse works to add back lost volume underneath the skin. In addition to replacing lost volume, Radiesse also stimulates the production of collagen within our bodies. 

Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid which primarily boosts the production of collagen, leading to gradual fullness and is effective for moderate to severe facial volume loss, with results that can last for years. It’s known for creating profound plumping effects without puffiness or water retention effects, especially in the off label area of the buttocks. Sculptra uses the same materials found  in dissolvable sutures , providing a scaffold for collagen production.

  • Challenges and pitfalls of treating these areas separately

Treating these areas individually doesn’t allow for a harmonious balance in the face. By injecting only the tear trough with a hyaluronic acid filler, the area will appear overly puffy. On the other hand, injecting HA fillers into the mid-face only make the under eye area appear darker and more creased. 

  • Needle versus cannula methods for enhanced safety and precision

Cannulas are more precise and cause less bruising to the eye area. More commonly, a needle is used in this area but may lead to more bruising in the recovery period. Cannulas take more skill to inject with and are Dr. Stephen Bracci’s preferred method of injecting.  

Why Choose EyeRise, the Premiere Under-Eye Filler Treatment 

EyeRise is a non-surgical technique for eye bag removal and under-eye circles, created by master injector Dr. Stephen Bracci and exclusively available at Verve. Dr. Bracci is known for treating the under-eye area and he developed this innovative method for reducing tired or aged appearance underneath the eyes. During the procedure, a tailored combination of cosmetic fillers are injected under the eyes, and the mid-face (malar) region. The goal of the procedure is to reduce the appearance of eye bags and restore the skin to its original position, by using different cosmetic fillers for each layer underneath the skin. When you purchase a filler treatment, you are purchasing access to as many fillers, touch-ups, and follow ups it may take to get you your desired results. 

In conclusion, the optimal treatment strategy is to use different fillers for different areas, use a sufficient amount of filler in the desired area, and require multiple visits for a natural and complete correction. If you believe you are a good candidate for EyeRise, schedule a consultation at VERVE Medical Cosmetics.
